Susan B. Anthony wants you. She's asking for volunteers to gather support to save a neighborhood landmark.

   About a month ago, someone set up a     petition

in opposition to a plan to demolish 660 West Main Street (formerly Westminster Presbyterian Church) and to prevent the building of a Dollar General in its place. The owner of the petition is using "Susan B. Anthony" as an alias. And this week "Susan B. Anthony" sent me a plea for help via email...

Former Westminster Presbyterian Church, 660 West Main Street, Rochester NY.

   She is looking for volunteers to go door to door in the Susan B. Anthony, Bulls Head and Changing of the Scenes neighborhoods to collect signatures and letters of support from the community in an effort to save the church. She will also need volunteers at the public market on Saturday to do the same.

If you'd like to help, you are asked to contact them at      [email protected]    with your name, phone number, and weekend availability.

A Zoning Board public hearing has been set for November 29th to determine the fate of the Westminster Presbyterian Church. Susan B. Anthony says, "We need to put feet on the ground fast to save this Rochester landmark."
